Very beautiful grounds and gardens. The Castle is very nice and we'll laid out so you can see the life and times of the owners through generations. I enjoyed the grounds A lot. They were very well maintained and offered some relaxing walking.

Had a day out and headed for Chirk Castle. The gardens are fantastic and parts of the castle are very interesting too. It has the look and the feel of a castle ftom the outside but not so much from the inside.

It's quite steep with a hairpin bend. Some of our group took the NT minibus up to the castle and back again. If you have difficulty walking up slopes, I suggest you take the minibus to visit the castle. The setting and the... More

There is a little trek from the entrance to the castle of about ten minutes or you can take the mini bus which runs back and forth all day
